Union stands in solidarity with French comrades after attack on Charlie Hebdo attacks

nujThe NUJ is calling on all supporters of press freedom to join a minute’s silence today at 11am.

NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said: “Following yesterday’s shocking and sickening assassinations of journalists at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and attending police officers, the NUJ is calling on all members to observe the minute’s silence called by colleagues in France this morning at 11am our time (noon in France).

“The NUJ, together with journalists and their unions around the world, has condemned this attack as an attempt to gag press freedom and attack the entire profession. Please join us all in stopping work for one minute to pay our collective respects to colleagues who have paid the ultimate price in carrying out their work.”
